Skate & BMX Competitions
(Fistral Beach, 6th – 10th August) – Skating only exists because surfers couldn’t live without boardriding when the waves were down, they still can’t! So we know first hand how important it is to bring to the party and with the level of BMX talent in the UK, we had to make it a full house… Skate and BMX competitions crack on throughout the week on purpose-built ramps right on the edge of Fistral Beach. Come down to get behind the UKs best as they carve the wooden waves.
Join us around our skate & BMX haven along the Fistral shoreline to enjoy…
